Summer Picnic Essentials

The best part about summer is enjoying time outside with good friends, good food and happy vibes. What better way to get all three by hosting a summer picnic? We’ve rounded up some of the best picnic essentials from the handmade community to help you prepare for your next outdoor adventure.

Picnic Blankets

Nothing completes a picnic like a cozy blanket to lay out on the grass and relax. Gone are the days of traditional red and white plaid blankets. The handmade community is stocked with uniquely crafted threads to lie out and enjoy a homemade snack. From astrological prints to simple stripes, these picnic blankets are changing the game.

Picnic Baskets

A picnic isn’t a picnic without a basket. We’ve found some dazzling vintage finds that are equipped with the grooviest tableware to serve up your famous potato salad. A good basket is sturdy and comes with a strong handle to carry your goodies to the perfect picnic spot. Yes, these finds are Yogi Bear approved. (Left to right: The Suitcase Archaic, The Willies, Kiss Mouth)


What good is a picnic if you can’t dig into all that amazing food you prepared? A cute set of cutlery to eat all the goods is necessary paired with a few serving spoons to dish out your home-cooked treats. (Left to right: Sucre Shop, Anne Riggs Design, Holly Horton)
